Human Resources

Human Resources plays an important role in achieving the mission and vision of Augsburg College by recruiting, retaining, rewarding, and developing employees.

Employment Philosophy

Augsburg College is committed to helping its members – students and employees alike – explore their vocation. As a college with a calling, we welcome the unique gifts that each of our employees brings to our collective work, and we are committed to supporting our employees as they seek to match those gifts with the needs of the College and our larger community. It is through this ongoing discernment of vocation – of helping our community members seek meaning in their lives and work – that we believe we will be best equipped to serve our neighbor and to educate our students at the intersection of faith, learning, and service.

The College recognizes that in order to serve our students and live out our mission we need to be committed to ensuring that the work environment allows employees to have clear expectations of their job responsibilities and career opportunities matched with the needs of the College, as well as competitive compensation. We strive to have a collective commitment to the success of our colleagues. We are dedicated to creating an atmosphere of work that epitomizes co-creation and effective partnerships as a hallmark of our work together.

EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY

It is the policy of the College to provide equal employment opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local laws, directives, and regulations.  We recruit, hire, train, and promote qualified persons in all job titles, without regard to race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, religious belief, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, or marital status, except where such status is a bona fide occupational qualification.
